Do a Google search for any plant, and the knowledge panel will say that it is "Algae" in the subtitle underneath the name of the plant.

Edit: This appears to be fixed as of 12 hours after making this post. I did report it to Google via the feedback button before making the post so more likely they saw it there than here. It was like this for at least a couple days. The chaos was fun while it lasted.

You weren’t kidding about this lol, all plants are now algae until further notice.

I mean, reality is bullshit since Pluto stopped being a real planet.

Wait…dead ass is Pluto not a planet again? I thought the first Pluto-is-not-planet thing was reversed?


McSmarfy t1_iy223vs wrote

Dwarf planet the last I heard. But they already fucked up reality like changing the future while time travelling. Any attempts to fix it breaks it more.

Not sure where they would reverse it. The story is that if Pluto is defined as a planet the current definition of a planet has to be changed.

Specifically the line "A planet is any object in orbit around the Sun that is dominant in its immediate neighbourhood.". This happens due to big objects making small objects orbit unstable if they are close. Pluto does not do this and does not fill that criteria.

If this criteria was removed however there is a lot of additional bodies in orbit around the sun that would be planets, so it's Pluto and 200 additional planets, or Pluto as a dwarf planet.

This happened to me like 2-3 days ago for an evergreen and I was like huh, today I learned, just shrugging it off like I can't believe that's algae.

You think you know better than Google?

Wow, I saw this just last night, the first result identified it as a plant, but immediately below that it also called it an algae.

I'm still having any plant I can think of be listed as an algae, so maybe it's not entirely fixed lol

Interesting it's still happening for me.
